Children and young people today face a world of ‘unknown unknowns’. To succeed, they will need to develop a love of learning. And education systems need to support them by developing fertile ‘soil’ – the foundations of lifelong learning. This has been recognised in the development plans of many emerging countries. But education systems are failing to address this need. For example, the Confederation of Indian Industry found that more than 50% of school leavers were unemployable.
We believe that the most sustainable way to build the foundations of lifelong learning is by reigniting intrinsic motivation at all levels of an education system. We support governments to employ practical strategies that promote positive behaviours in teachers and officials. And in turn, these build the foundations of lifelong learning in children. By addressing this issue at scale and through government systems, we’re able to make a significant impact for less than US $0.50 per child per year.

STiR has deliberately built a team with backgrounds in the private, public and social sectors. For example, Sharath Jeevan, STiR’s Founder and CEO, was educated at Cambridge and Oxford Universities and received his MBA from INSEAD. He was awarded an honorary doctorate for his contribution to global education and serves on the Education Commission’s workforce group – the pre-eminent institution, founded by Gordon Brown, looking at the future of global education.
